Buddleja 'Octopus' is a stunning shrub that is perfect for creating an eye catching display in your garden. This variety has been bred for a multi-branching habit. Buddlejas flower at the tip of their branches, so more branches means even more flowers. With showy magenta blooms that are sweetly scented, this new variety will attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. It’s neat and compact habit and a long flowering period, make it a fantastic addition to patio containers or sunny borders where they will thrive. Height and spread: 120cm (48").

Grow buddleja in garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full sun or semi-shade. Alternatively grow buddleja plants in patio containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. Buddleja planted directly into borders will require only occasional attention. In spring, prune buddleja plants back to a permanent low framework of 3 or 4 buds from the base of the plant. Deadhead faded buddleja flowers to prolong the flowering season.
